I am getting low on birthday cards and I was inspired to create this birthday day from a card I saw on Instagram. I loved that it was all white with a pop of colour in a circle with sweet birds on an ink blended background. My family are big cat lovers and today I have mixed and matched different flower and leaf dies with the sweet little cat from the Amazing Paper Grace Make a Scene collection by Becca Feeken to create a lovely garden scene of flowers with a cute little cat amongst them. This card is quite easy to make and you could use so many different motifs to personalise the card to your tastes. I am fairly new to ink blending and I had so much fun with it and was really pleased with the result.
I will have a video tutorial on my YouTube channel shortly and will link it here when done.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
For my card today I have created a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ top hinged base card from white cardstock. I have added a frame using the Amazing Paper Grace Rectangle Fluted Classics Dies with foam tape. I then die cut a circle using the circle die from the Amazing Paper Grace Circle Fluted Classics Dies out of masking paper and then added this to some spare white cardstock. I ink blended the circle using light blue, yellow and green inks and then die cut the panel out using the inner die from the frame and inserted inside the frame. I die cut three circle frames using the small circle dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Circle Fluted Classics Dies from white cardstock. I added one frame to the ink blended circle then stacked two circle frames together before adding them to the frame on the card with foam squares.
I then die cut all the flowers from coloured cardstock as well as the leaves and flower stalks and the cat using dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Rolling Along Scene Dies and the Picture Perfect Windows Scene Dies I added the stalks and leaves to the inside of the circle with the leaves flowing over the edge. I added the flowers and popped the little cat among the flowers with a foam square.
I die cut three sentiments from the Amazing Paper Grace Celebrations Scene Dies, stacked them together and adhered them under the circle.
To finish I have made a vellum butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Dies and added it to the frame of the circle as shown.
